Aphonopelma seemanni - should I dig her out?

I noticed that my usually very healthy eating A seemanni hasn't touched her dinner from last night.
The cric is walking around in the enclosure.
So while looking around, I noticed that the T has completely covered her burrow's entrance with subtrate.
Don't know if it is time to molt or why she is doing this, her abdomen is still very light.
Is it possible that it was closed by accident? Certainly looks to have been done on purpose.

Any one had an experience like this?

I wouldn't dig her out - trust her, she'll know best what to do! If she's already big she may very well stay dug in for a few weeks now. And don't worry, T's know how to dig themselves out even if they went under by accident :side:

Should I leave the cric inside and see if perhaps she fetches it at night or should I take it out?
I doubt it will be able to reach her anyways.

EDIT:
Thanks for the tips everyone. As usual, the forum has spoken :D
